Seriously cool that rules with political tools. There's no better place in Aotearoa to get your city fix.

There are lots of markets in Wellington city and suburbs, mainly on the weekends. Each market seems to trend towards a specific something; some are fresh produce, some are mainly craft, and some are overflowing with interesting brick-a-brack. Wellington’s oldest market is the Harbourside Market in Waitangi Park.

Wellington is a funky town! The waterfront area is great, the museum is there as well as many sculptures dotted along side the walkway. Lots of good photo opportunities.
